I mean SERIOUSLY! Dan Qualye, the master of spelling potato, the wannabe JFK is the chairman of Cerberus Investments? Cerberus - the company that has been trying to strong-arm GM into taking over Chrysler - THAT Cerberus.
I guess I missed that memo somewhere along the way.
You missed in the linked article that the takeover group is Cerberus Capital Management LP. Quayle is chairman of Cerberus Global Investments, which is a subsidiary of the former. There’s no data suggesting he personally has any role in the talks at all. In fact, it appears the important people were keeping their mouths shut, and Quayle was the only one stupid enough to talk.
